Following Ninja Theory’s promised USD$100,000 donation to Mental Health America, the team behind the upcoming adventure game The Thin Silence has partnered with Australian charity organisation CheckPoint.
As part of the partnership, ten cents from every copy of the title will be donated to CheckPoint’s goal of raising mental health awareness, particularly targeting gamers.
Details on The Thin Silence are relatively scarce, though it will be a 2D side-scrolling narrative game with a “fresh item-vs-environment interaction mechanic.” The game follows Ezra Watermark as he undertakes a journey that will help him to deal with his mental health issues.
Meanwhile, CheckPoint was founded in 2016 and aims to promote the use of video games to improve the wellbeing of individuals, and its website hosts a range of resources dedicated to that goal.
The Thin Silence is scheduled for release on April 27, though a price point has not yet been revealed.
